Ann is a senior lecturer in environmental policy at Lincoln University. Her area of interest is the politics, policy, and governance of publicly-owned land and natural resources. She has published several articles about biodiversity policy in NZ and the US in Conservation Biology, Conservation Letters, and NZ Journal of Ecology with such subtle titles as “Is collaboration good for the environment? Or, what’s wrong with the Land and Water Forum?” Most of her work in NZ has been about the politics and economics of South Island high country land reform, and is the topic of her first (and only) book, Who owns the high country?. Ann is a Fulbright Scholar, and holds a PhD from Berkeley and a Masters from Yale. Her first degree, from Pomona College, was in French literature.

Andrea is the Director of the New Zealand’s Biological Heritage National Science Challenge. Her research interests lie in the ecology of multiple invasive mammal species in New Zealand and their interactive effects on native flora and fauna in tandem with other drivers of global change such as climate and land use change. She has worked on similar issues in Australia and Africa. Andrea is also an Associate Investigator in the Te Punaha Matatini Centre of Research Excellence, collaborating on projects looking at the role of citizen science in invasive species management, and the biodiversity outcomes of major pest control regimes in New Zealand.
Suzie is the Portfolio Leader for Supporting Business and Policy at Landcare Research NZ. She leads 2 MBIE research programmes: BEST - Building biodiversity into an ecosystem service-based approach for resource management and the Values, Monitoring and Outcomes for Freshwater Management. Some of Suzie’s current research involves the analysis, design and implementation of environmental and agricultural policy and policy processes (including collaborative processes), the development of market-based instruments for ecosystem services (particularly water quality, biodiversity and greenhouse gases), and developing frameworks to incorporate ecosystem services into decision-making.
Suzie holds a degrees in resource economics and agricultural and rural science (soils) from the US and Australia.
Raewyn currently heads EDS’s environmental think-tank and for the past decade Raewyn’s work has focused on landscape protection, coastal development and marine management in New Zealand. She has written numerous papers, research reports and guides on these issues. She was co-winner of the Resource Management Law Association Publication Award for Caring for Our Coast: An EDS Guide to Managing Coastal Development (2013), an EDS publication which she co-authored and edited. She has published a major book on coastal development titled Castles in the Sand: What’s Happening to the New Zealand Coast? (2009) and on marine mammal protection titled Dolphins of Aotearoa: Living with Dolphins in New Zealand (2013). The latter was shortlisted for the Royal Society of New Zealand Science Book Prize.
Raewyn has recently completed a book on the environmental, social and cultural history of the Hauraki Gulf. Titled Hauraki: The Story of the Gulf, the book is being published by David Bateman in a full colour coffee table format and will be released in September 2016. Raewyn is a member of the Stakeholder Working Group which is preparing a marine spatial plan for the Hauraki Gulf under the Seachange - Tai Timu Tai Pari project.
Susan is an ecologist and research programme leader based at Landcare Research in Dunedin with expertise in inland South Island ecosystems and in conservation outcome measurement and decision-making. Her research often touches the ecology-policy interface through conservation planning, land reform (South island High Country tenure review), land use change, and biodiversity offsetting: Susan's 2009 paper "Why bartering biodiversity fails" combines political and ecological science and is one of the offset literature's most cited. Her interest in New Zealand's bird fauna has expanded rapidly from initial enquiries into trends in production landscapes.
Madeleine holds an LLB and a BA majoring in Political Studies from the University of Otago and Charles University Prague.
Prior to joining EDS, Madeleine worked in the resource management team at a major law firm.
Madeleine manages EDS's submissions and litigation programme. She also contributes content to EDS's policy papers and community guides and presents at EDS's community workshops.
Jonathan has undertaken research on a wide range of policy issues including incomes policy, the design of the welfare state, tertiary education funding, research funding, climate change mitigation and adaptation, and child poverty, as well as various issues of governance, including electoral reform. He served on the Tertiary Education Advisory Commission during 2000-01, helped design and oversee the implementation of the Performance-Based Research Fund during 2002-06, and co-chaired the Children’s Commissioner’s Expert Advisory Group on Solutions to Child Poverty during 2012-13. He has served at various times as Director of the Institute of Policy Studies and Director of the Institute for Governance and Policy Studies at Victoria University. In 2014 he was awarded a Fulbright Fellowship in the US to investigate ways of mitigating the ‘presentist bias’ in democratic governance – often referred to as ‘political myopia’ or ‘short-termism’. A major book based on this research – Governing for the Future: Designing Democratic Institutions for a Better Tomorrow – was published by Emerald in late 2016, and another book – Safeguarding the Future: Governing in an Uncertain World – was published by Bridget Williams Books in early 2017.

Marc was raised and educated in Canada (PhD McGill 1993) before coming to New Zealand in 1993 to work at NIWA and then the University of Otago. He is a freshwater scientist working as a research fellow in the Zoology Department of the University of Otago and specialises in lakes and coastal lagoons. He has carried out field studies on over 80 New Zealand lakes, from Northland to Campbell Island. Like many freshwater scientists, his research interests are broad. They including the effects of land use, climate change and invasive species (and the interactions of these) on lakes and coastal lagoons. He is also interested in reconstructing environmental histories and pre-histories from lake sediment core archives to help understand historical patterns of change in lakes and lagoons in relation to changes in sea level, climate and human pressures.
